It is the story of a summer in the life of Colleen, a college bound 18-year old, who is living on her own for the first time. She faces many obstacles over the summer, from reuinting with her ex-boyfriend, Evan, losing her current boyfriend, Ben, having a truly awful roommate, and much more. Colleen, however, is able to make it through the months with her three closest friends by her side and an unexpected new friend, an elderly artist. Colleen ultimately struggles with herself, making mistakes along the way, yet finally arriving at a place she can be at peace. Furthermore, Catherine Clark is able to make her novel come to live by the use of many literary devices. Through the constant use of rhetorical questions, Clark allows Colleen to state the obvious in her own thoughts and while conversing with others. Also, personification is used often when Colleen describes her cats, Starsky and Hutch, making them at times seem human. In addition, while Colleen is working at a crabshack, her boss tells her to chose a crustacean which represents her personality. Colleen, therefore, speaks metaphorically when she refers to herself as a soft shell crab. Clark's style is plain and simple, making her novel easy to comprehend. Its tone is constantly changing from shocked to humorous and candid. This book will keep any teenage girl up all night, with all the drama, bickering, and romance the fun never stops. The author explains how Colleen or any typical girl deals with the unexpected choices each having critical consequences. I love how I can relate to this book; it helps you realize that life is not perfect. Colleen is an interesting character who is artistic, and quiet, but who faces the same challenges that teenage girls face everyday in their lives. Her friends (Erica, Samantha, and Haley) all bring unique personalities to MAINE SQUEEZE, causing female readers to find themselves identifying to each and every girl, and comparing the characters to her own friends. Reading MAINE SQUEEZE is like reading a letter from your best friend. Filled with ups and downs in the romance, work, and school departments, this book will be cherished by all female teenagers.

Maine Squeeze is another love story but it is not like the other ones you read that make you cry at every single word. It¿s about a young teenager named Colleen who is living at home with her 2 best friends while her parents are in Europe and works at Bobb¿s Lobster and is in a happy relationship until her old boyfriend Evan shows up unexpected. He then starts working at the same restaurant as Colleen. Her feelings for Evan start to show and she is having to choose if she wants to date the guy she fell in love with so many summers ago but left or the guy who makes her happy.

Okay, this book was probably the best book i have read in a long time. I am a huge fan of short romance type novels but this one really takes the cake. I loved how Colleen had that old summer romance that just had to pop back in but she never forgot about her boyfriend, Ben, either. Honestly though, Evan sounds absolutely amazing to me :) This book is filled with twists and laughs and it made me bug my mom for months about wanting to move to Maine!! I definitely recommend it to anyone and everyone.
